But we are not talking about a cruise control or a crash avoiding system, instead, we are talking about the rotating headlights on this 1971 Opel GT. Despite being one really amazing and beautiful car, a car that can be recognized by literary anyone, it had an absolutely amazing feature that was very much brand new back in 1971. The headlights were rotating 180 degrees i.e. half a turn. This meant that whenever you want your headlights to be sticking out from the car, all you had to do is to pull the lever on the inside and they turned nicely and smoothly.
